My Twelve Home Basics

Inspired by this post series, "The New Basics: The 12 Home Items I Can't Live Without" on Design*, I created this list. The idea is simple - complete this exercise by looking around your home and assessing which items have stayed with you or will definitely be with you for the next few years. Below are my answers.
  • 1. My blue IKEA Hemnes dresser, because I love its color and functionality
  • 2. My found-by-the-side-of-the-road bureau which holds my art supplies
  • 3. A handmade toy box I've had since I was a child
  • 4. A tribal beige rug, because it goes with everything
  • 5. My mattress (practical) and my tulips vintage pillowcase from Etsy
  • 6. My giant blue poppies print from Target (no longer available)
  • 7. A handmade quilt from my aunt for our baby
  • 8. 9. & 10. Our pets (all three of them)
  • 11. Our collection of decoy ducks
  • 12. An abstract self-portrait I painted in college
Now you tell me, what are your own 12 basics?
